Still the best computer role-playing game so far (2002)
2 April 2002 | by martin_edenSee all my reviews

When it was released - it was a shock for fans of computer role-playing games. It's first game which has so rich and so intelligent plot. Only Fallout 2 can match with this one. Still the best computer role-playing game ever. If something can be the best role-play - Fallout is nearest to the ideal.
